Let Them Eat Cake - WiP

Currently in Drawing our out of class drawing assignment is a historical self-portrait. I drew myself in a Georgian outfit, inspired heavily by the 2006 Sofia Coppola film "Marie Antoinette".

It's definitely still a work in progress, especially on the bustle part of the dress as well as the flowers in the hair (that you can barely tell are there), and the giant ostrich feather in my hair. I'm still debating what to put in the background. It's currently a toss up between a lovely topiary garden or the inside of the Chapel Royal.

Double, non-fat, cinnamon dolce, latté. No Foam.

These cold, dreary Rochester days often call for a hot drink. Whether you like your coffee straight up, or like me, with all sorts of foofy flavorings and milk and sugar.. they both taste lovely on a cold morning.

The subject of my Computer and Imaging assignment lately has been this coffee cup. Here it is in all its glory, painted from scratch in photoshop. I'm quite pleased with the results.

Drink up, everyone!

Back in Rochester

First week back at school, and this is what I have to come back to. Lovely, no?

Before I went on break I completed this project:

It's a color wheel I personally designed for my 2D Design class. It's made with coloraid paper and pasted onto a grey illustration board. It's really pretty, but cutting out all those tiny little pieces of paper was annoying, to say the very least.
